McDermott: Key injured players improving

The Bills were down several starters in their loss to the Titans on Tuesday night

The Buffalo Bills were without several key players in Tuesday night's 42-16 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Head coach Sean McDermott told the media on Wednesday that linebacker Matt Milano (pectoral), wide receiver John Brown (calf), cornerback Tre'Davious White (back), and offensive guard Quinton Spain are all improving, but didn't have any specific update on any of their status. Milano, Brown, and White were declared inactive for the game after missing practice time last week. Spain informed the team of foot soreness prior to kickoff and then was placed on the injury report and declared inactive.

McDermott said tight end Dawson Knox, who left the game with a calf injury, had either an MRI or X-Rays taken on Monday and added, "we'll see how the week goes."

Defensive play-calling

Considering the defensive struggles the team has had over the first five weeks, McDermott was asked if he'd consider taking defensive play-calling duties from defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. He said he'll "keep those conversations in-house," but added he has complete confidence in Frazier, who is also the Bills' assistant head coach.

The Bills will next play the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday, Oct. 19 at 5 p.m. ET in Orchard Park.
